Ana Salas at Phoenix Cultuur

By | In the Studio, News

We don’t usually tell about the days after… In most cases we try to organize some visits for the documentary makers that are our guests. We thought it would be nice to tell about the places we have been on October 10th.

The day after the screening of In the Studio at the City Theater, we visited different places together with Ana Salas. First of all we went to see the work of Geert Maas, who was very enthousiastic about the film of Ana and the work of Carlos Salas. After a warm welcome he showed Ana around in “de Groene Kantoortuin”, a place that breaths creativity and sustainability.

With Phoenix Cultuur participating in this particular screening, we were also invited to get a tour at the Noordkade. Myriam Simons took us through all studios, introducing us to groups busy with pottery, sculpturing, forging and painting. Finally we picked up Gertjan van Rozendaal, from GEK, to join us for a lunch in the forests of Oisterwijk and a visit of museum de Pont in Tilburg. A place that could actually host works of Carlos Salas in the future…

Vrijwilligersavond

By | News

Op 30 maart 2017 hebben we een vrijwilligersavond georganiseerd, bij Casa Del Arte, voor de mensen die ons helpen en nog een paar mensen die we er die avond graag bij wilden hebben. We hebben de afgelopen twee jaar doorgenomen en daarna de documentaire “Play no matter what” van Kim van Haaster gekeken. Supertof dat Kim er zelf ook was. Met een pilsje in de hand hebben we gezellig nagepraat.

Street Art in Schijndel

By | News, Pixadores

After showing the inspiring documentary Pixadores, one of Schijndel City Council’s executives jumped enthusiastically on stage and suggested the new, controversial and extremely white bicycling tunnel could very well use a layer of artistic graffiti that would transform this boring tunnel into one big work of art.
